Does anyone know whether the Jan 22nd Full moon is still on? There were rumours that it had been cancelled due to the kings sisters death this month.
Please answer as soon as poss.

Cheers!

I heard about it as well. There was to be a mourning period of 100 days, starting from the day of her death. So I think it had been cancelled.

All the clubs on the beach are open every night as usual and there are signs up for the Full Moon Soccer Cup (which takes place every month) so it would be very unlikely for the Full Moon to be cancelled. Also, when I paid for my room the woman on reception said 'Ah, so you're staying until after Full Moon' so she seems to think it's still on.

If they had a day when the clubs were told to shut then they would just move the Full Moon Party to the next day (they do this when the Full Moon clashes with buddhist festivals).
